    I'll watch the UK stream as it will probably be more stable than the US stream.

    Edit: Yep, nintendo.com has server issues as of now.

    The codename is better than Switch. But that thing looks impressive, can't wait for reviews and launch titles. Looks interesting enough.

    Is there a picture of the console? I'm on my phone and don't want to waste my data on a subpar release trailer.

    Looks a lot more mature then their previous efforts and I like the name. I'm so glad they went the unified system route.

    Those control options look confusing right now though.

    Not bad.
